Nicole Richie is the wild daughter of famous music legend Lionel Richie. She grew up destined to become a star and has been seen all over the place for outrageous behavior. Nicole is best known for starring alongside Hilton heiress, Paris Hilton in the reality television series The Simple Life.
Both Nicole and Paris have been best friends since they were little and have wanted pursue careers in acting. However, Nicole has broadened her abilities to singing, acting and writing along with always being in the media’s eye. Nicole never understood the word “no” and always got her way. She has had too much freedom and has gotten herself into a lot of trouble because of it.
Unfortunately, as a result of drug and alcohol usage, Nicole was involved in five major accidents and was reportedly arrested three times. In 2003 she entered into a drug rehabilitation center and at that point her father sat down with her and explained to her that what she was doing was wrong. She needed help and the only way to recover from her addiction was treatment.
For once in her life, she is learning to deal with her depression and problems in another way. She is spending her free time taking violin, piano, cello, guitar and figure skating lessons. Nicole wants to sing again and had planned on doing another season of The Simple Life with Paris, but due to some health problems the show has been put on hold.
Nicole loved filming The Simple Life reality television series. Every episode was different and full of surprises. The show really showcased the real Nicole Richie for her generosity and love for boys. Through the show, Nicole and Paris spent a lot of time together and eventually grew apart. Critics believe they weren’t friends for television ratings, but their fans know that was not the truth.
Currently, Richie and Hilton are back to being best friends and are spending lots of time together. Nicole has plans for a new music album and after rumors spread about her anorexia problem, she decided to get help. She has been eating more and gaining weight little by little. Nicole has realized that family and friends mean everything.
Richie is trying to turn her life around and is currently single. Longtime boyfriend DJ Adam and Nicole broke off their engagement and relationship for good. Their relationship was a rocky rollercoaster and was extremely hard for both of them to move on. They have remained to be friends, but have both received closure from the relationship.
Nicole is on to much better things in her life, but is concentrating on her health. She has been seeing a nutritionist and trainer to get her body on the right track. Her doctor has advised her that she does not have an eating disorder, but is receiving treatment for an anorexic disorder.
They are not the same and Nicole no longer wants to set a bad example to younger children that may think that this is alright because it is not. She thanks her fans for all the support that she has received and wants to make a difference.
